Look who we found in our cookies! After Mable’s nutritional consultation with Dr. Jenn, we couldn’t keep her away from our chocolate chip cookies! One day our clever little Elf hitched a ride home with Emily.
Where Maddie, Emily’s daughter, taught Mable her families favorite Grain Free Cookie Recipe! Maddie taught our Elf all about real food & healthy ways to make tasty food… even chocolate chip cookies!
Mable’s Favorite Grain Free Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe:
(Recipe from Detoxinista.com)
And even though these cookies happen to be grain-free & naturally sweetened, there’s nothing “healthy” tasting about them!!! Santa is sure to enjoy them too! Made with almond flour & rich maple syrup, these soft and chewy cookies pack a nutty, complex flavor in each bite.
Makes about 2 dozen small cookies
1 1/2 cups of Blanched Almond Flour (store-bought or homemade)
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
2 tablespoons coconut oil, softened
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
1 whole egg, or flax egg
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Preheat your oven to 350F. In a medium bowl, combine the almond flour, baking soda and salt and mix well. In a separate bowl, combine the coconut oil, vanilla, maple syrup and egg, and mix well.
Add the wet mixture into the dry mixture, and mix well until a uniform batter is achieved, then stir in the chocolate chips.
Using a tablespoon, or cookie scoop, drop the batter onto a baking sheet lined with a Silpat or parchment paper. Bake at 350F for 10 minutes, or until golden around the edges, turning the pan half-way through baking time.
Allow the cookies to cool on the pan for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
